Sebelius drops the other shoe...

The morning after delivering the nationally-televised Democratic response to President Bush's State of the Union address, Kansas Gov. Kathleen Sebelius - the Cincinnati-born-and-raised daughter of former Ohio governor John J. Gilligan, hustled off to the Kansas town of El Dorado to announce her support for Barack Obama for president.

Why El Dorado? It's the home town of the Illinois senator's maternal grandfather.

The Obama endorsement came after a Democratic-response speech that many pundits thought had said Obama-like touches - lots of references to unity, working together for the common good, putting aside partisan politics.

Sounded to us like a rehearsal speech for an Obama running mate.

Lots of good hard working non criminals are getting behind President Obama. He's a good man and will make a great leader for our nation. Listen to him and examine his record, if you can't find anything to support then I would suggest our problems might just be you, the brainless or racist voter you just may prove yourself to be.

That's a wild speculation, Huggable. Edwards is a more likely running mate. Ditto for Senator Webb.

"I would suggest our problems might just be you, the brainless or racist voter you just may prove yourself to be."
Is this "unity" Obama style ?

If you listen to her playback or transcript she referred to her father as a Congressman or former Congressman.


Exactly where were you on not picking up on that one?

Helllooo- 5:22-

Yes, her father was a Dem congressman and her father-in-law a Rep. congressman.

Did you not pick up that she was referring to a plea for putting aside partisan politics for the greater common good?

Sebelius denigrates those nasty Republicans out of one side of her mouth while saying we must work together out of the other side. This is not reasoned argument, this is marketing. I hate marketing. From now on I'll dedicate myself to the burning question of which is more relevent; Coke or Pepsi

Sebelius is a fraud and an empty skirt. Hack reporter Howie just isn't smart enough to know that she's not on anybody's RADAR screen for VP.
